portable, easy to remove washing drying rack

my SO wanted a drying solution. Not all camp ground have trees and or nicely spaced strong posts to run a clothes line

so i built one after finding a special part in a boat store. its the rubber clip that screws into the bumper and the bottom horizontal pole pivots on it
  • using 1' square alum stock
  • drill holes are solid 1/4" alum bar stock
  • get PVC pipes that has ID just over 1/4"
  • cut them all to the same length
  • drill holes into the end of the bar stock so that hitch pins fit
  • put the solid bar stock into the PVC pipe
  • clip the hitch pins onto one side
  • from one end start align the solid bar on the others side
  • now you have what looks like a ladder
  • since all the items are cut to the same length, the ladder is fairly rigid
  • screw the rubber mount onto the bumber
  • push the bottom of the ladder onto the rubber mount
  • now decide what angle you want he rack to be at when in use
  • i used aircraft SS cable with turnbuckles
.

it all comes apart and stores as just a bunch of linear stock

here is what it looks like

this is what the rear of the as22FB looks like after the drying rack is taken apart.
the rubber swivel mounts are invisible against the bumper
the two white plastic cable clamps are visible, but they are very small
3m tape atop to stop water leaks

that was an install condition from my SO
